Algebra 1

Square Roots

In the same way that division is the opposite of mulitplication, taking the square root of a number is the opposite of squaring it. You will practice Multiplying Radical Expressions with the FOIL Method, Using Conjugates to Rationalize Denominators, and Solving Root Equations. We will learn special properties and rules, such as The Quotient Property of Square Roots when Simplifying Radical Expressions. From Roots and Powers in Equations to Radical Functions in the Real World, our Square Roots topic will prepare you for more advanced math topics, such as quadratic equations.
